is it possible to get the best of multiple worlds without compromise? The answer is yes a good piece along the road, if you are playing with the idea of running pure electric, but will not give up the reassurance of that is to be able to age far at the a tankfuld petrol, and on top of the hat dreaming of a quick GTI.
It is compiled in opladningshybriden VW Golf GTE, we test.
VW has a few years been on the track with the rapid Golf GTE opladningshybrid, which can be recharged in the outlet, and in which an electric motor 105 hp plays along with a 1.4 liter TSI petrol engine of 150 hp, so the overall system performance is up to 204 hp, while the range is 50 km on pure eldrift with up to 130 km/ h.
however, It has now been given a discreet facelift as the rest of its Golf sibling, while the prices according to the latest tariff charge is decreased from an amount of eur 365.000€, that is precisely adjusted to 319.000 kr. plus delivery, while the beskatningsværdien by erhvervsleasing is 286.000 kr. It is undeniably a difference in relation to the 426.000 kr., as the GTE was sold to a couple of years ago in the strip of reductions.
suddenly GTE's to an exciting and slightly more expensive alternative to a regular Golf with a 1.4 liter TSI 150 hp, Comfortline equipment and a DSG-automatic gearbox, which, however, is on the seven steps towards GTE's six, costs 279.000 kr. the

it's Among the cheapest
the Golf GTE is among the cheapest opladningshybrider on the market, only beaten by the Kia Niro PHEV, which we have tested for a short time ago. It starts from 265.000 kr. plus the lev. Niroen are namely an electric motor with 43.5 bhp and a system performance with a 141 hp less powerful, while the theoretical range on pure electricity, with its 58 miles are a tad longer than the 50 km, the Golf GTE on paper doing.
With its boomerangformede daytime running lights and isblåt glance in the headlights look like WEIGHTS on the distance the all electric e-Golf, but opladningshybriden have larger nostrils of kølerindtag. Before the doors are doomed solid classic Golf-style atmosphere with deep sports seats with the distinctive Clark-cubes and a cabin that offers lint-free finish with contact and grip in lakridsbløde materials.
We can play on a keyboard, which is called the five settings.
One is clean eldrift, a second hybrid, where the electric motor spæder to the scope or by acceleration, while in the GTE-the setting has sharpened chassis and more boost on acceleration, that can get down to 7.6 sec. - a Golf GTI with 230 hp is doing 6,4 sec. You can also charged up the battery while driving, which, however, corrodes the bad in the fuel tank, as well as store power for later use. Moreover, there is also a B setting where you motorbremser more and download the extra energy here.

the Car is built with the thought that you let the car up myself. It can be done in three and a half hours at home or at a time less by a ladestander, or if you get a so-called wallboks at home in the garage.
The official consumption figures called 66,7 km/ l for combined electricity and on petrol after the theoretical norm for plugin hybrid vehicles, which do not hold in practice. This is, however, at the same time, a combined range of 939 km in combined electricity and on petrol with one electrical charge.
We landed at the edge of a few tens of km/ l. But just like in electric cars, it is in a plugin hybrid very much on driving style and temperature, affect battery performance and range.
We tested the car with temperatures around five plus degrees, where the range was about 70 per cent. of the promised, and at minus five degrees went down 50 per cent.
Highway spending also, it is tempting to let speederfoden pressing a little harder. On eldrift itself, which in turn also ample power to accelerate with the city traffic.
If you commute 25 miles each way to and from the job, we will not deny to you with the eco-setting and an easy speederfod can run on pure electricity both ways.
Our cold nordic climate, where the temperature much of the year is around 10 degrees, however, are not the best for cars with the battery.
While Kia Niro-opladningshybrid even with eldrift start the engine, if there is heating in the cabin, it is not happening in the Golf GTE, where the heat is handled by the battery. So you're running here on pure electricity, but the tabs so the battery performance. In the daily WEIGHTS'a letkørt and comfortable as any Volkswagen. Here are thinking you are not over when the engine imperceptibly switches between the petrol and eldrift. Helped by the automatic transmission with the DSG-dobbeltkobling. the

Fast, but not dolly
GTE mode, where the shocks are tightened one tooth up, makes the car fast. But the weight, where the batteries weigh down, so it lands on the 1,500 kg plus the driver and fuel, makes, that GTE's a not so fun and dolly in the swing as in a real GTI.
Since there are nicely with equipment, the Golf GTE a good buy, if you want to try out new technology without having to venture coat.
If you bet on that run on pure electricity, then the council clearly whether it is a Golf GTE or other plug-in hybrids: Testbilen under different driving conditions and low temperatures.
Compare also, where there is the opportunity to charge the car and the deals on el.
Here are the VW a cooperation with the operator Clever.
Think of the battery space in the cargo area, which here is 272 liters, compared to 380 litres in a plain-door Golf.
GTE'does not exist as a station wagon, then you should up in the Passat GTE, available as sedan and station wagon.
Testbilen had bl. a. enhancements such as LED headlamps, digital instrumentation and a large screen of 9.2 inch and adaptive chassis. It is equipment, where the first three of those things run well over a dozen thousand kr., but to give a high-tech touch.
So if you want to go all the way, we give a thumbs up for the device, which puts the icing on the cake.
